S.M.A.K. makes efforts to involve young people in the exhibitions, especially those who normally never come into contact with art and museums. Creative workshops enable them to discover new interests and develop their talents. In partnership with a variety of schools, such as the Centrum Leren en Werken in Ghent, a range of projects have been created in recent years, for example ‘Paintshop’ and ‘Shadowlife’. How can you help young people connect with contemporary art via their own lived experiences?
S.M.A.K. Beweegt - Talk shows
The exhibition The Collection (1), Highlights for a Future is the occasion for a series of conversations about the strongly changing role of museums within communities. Whereas in the past museums mainly worked from an art-historical perspective, attention is now shifting to social relevance and the role that the public plays in this.
In five talk shows, Katleen Vermeulen (Amarant) receives various partners from the S.M.A.K. Beweegt programme, the educational and guide activities. This includes, among other things, the structural effect of S.M.A.K. on projects with prisoners, refugees, people with dementia, young people and children. The talk shows start at 16:00. With the exception of the talk show ‘Prison Drawings’ during the nocturn of Thursday 6 June at 20:00.
